The first real day of Spring, and Kreuzbergers descend on Görlitzer Park to celebrate.
A wintery Sunday of great music and a friendly crowd at Prince Charles, Berlin. Thanks to Dan and Lisa from It’s Bigger Than for organising such a fun event – and even better a fundraiser for Save the Children‘s Syria Appeal.
There’s no denying Berlin’s winter is long and hard. From October until April there is an almost total lack of sun, limited hours of daylight, constant below zero temperatures, and a colour palate limited to 50 shades of grey. Some days it feels like winter will never end. But it will, and it does – there is light at the end of the tunnel. So here is an Ode to Winter: grim, bleak, but also full of fragile beauty. A time for hibernation and reflection, shedding of old skins, and preparation for the rebirth of spring.

East Side Gallery Demonstration – Berlin, 3 March 2013
It’s a quiet Sunday morning in Neukölln and there’s a sense of impending hibernation in the air. The clock turned back last night and I need gloves for the first time to keep feeling in my fingers. As the sun shines rays of fading warmth and the golden leaves continue their relentless fall, we prepare ourselves psychologically for the long winter months ahead.
All the wonderful art happening at Achtundvierzig Stunden Neukölln this weekend is making me a little homesick for Berlin. I ♥ my Kiez.
A lazy Sunday back in Berlin, roaming the streets of Kreuzberg and Neukölln in search of markets, jewellery trunk shows, good coffee and even better waffles.
The sun is shining; spring is here.
Yes, sometimes I leave Neukölln. A trip to Boxhagener Platz Flohmarkt, Friedrichshain.

Here are some photos I took last Sunday around the streets of Kreuzberg and Neukölln. The light was glorious and it really felt like one of the last days of Autumn before the long winter sets in.

Thanks to all the wonderful Berliners, young and old, who called by our Tiny Art stall at Nowkoelln Flowmarkt today. Stay tuned for the next Tiny Art installment! Click here for pictures of the Flowmarkt.
Katrina James (I’ll Get You My Pretty) & I will be holding a tiny art stall at Nowkoelln Flowmarkt this Sunday November 6. There will be tiny art and tiny hats for sale. Examples of some tiny photos above! Our friend Ray Mann will also be performing on the Flowmarkt stage at 14:30. If you’re in Berlin on Sunday stop by and say hello. We’d love to see you there.
A quiet Autumn afternoon of coffees, markets and sneaky beers with good friends for my first weekend back in Berlin after a big summer in NYC.
